11  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / newbie pattern help on: July 26, 2010 06:05:48 PM
soo the last time i asked a question here, the answer (i forget from who) was so much clearer and easier than my local snooty knitting store...i have another.
i'm attempting a sweater and it's stockinette (knit row then purl row) so when it says "ST st end with WS wrong side" is the last row i knit purl?? the wrong side??  (so that the next step in the directions is done starting with the knit side....
thank you in advance Wink
12  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / newbie here-- help w/pattern please!! on: June 09, 2010 10:00:08 AM
i would much rather have an answer from you guys than the snoooty people at my local knitting store, esp b/c i'm making this sweater with cheap (ACMoore/vanna white!) yarn)
it's a kid sweater --i'm up to the sleeves and the pattern says: cast on 30 (ok so far) alternating colors (i'm skipping this part, hate stripes) AT SAME TIME, inc. 1 st each side every 6th row 5 times and every 4th row 8 times. --56 sts.

HELP-- does that mean i should add a stitch, at the beginning of every 4th and 6th row, eg the 4,6,8,12,16,18,20, 24, 28 and 30??? and at the end, i want 56 stitches??

any advice would be much appreciated... also nany help w/ attaching the sleeves to a basically square front and back??? Cheesy

THANKS!!

This is my third try at posting pics !!! So obviously I'm new to this...

the veggies are a pattern from Sublime Stitchery that I bought. The stitches are basic --back stitch, chain, split stitch.. the dots are french knots. The word I free-handed with a washable pen. The towels are "Food Network" brand flour sacks from Kohl's.I thought they were kind of pricey ($13 for 4) but after reading here about how cheapies fall apart/are hard to sew, I would rate these good.
Thanks for all comments --now I'll try for the 4th time to include my bad pics!!!






14  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Chick Magnet on: November 02, 2008 01:53:17 PM

I'm not sure if this will work --but I've been lurking for awhile... my son and I copied this from an expensive, on-line Halloween costume site... He's on the left (his disinterested, uninspired friend is on the right.) My son is a Chick Magnet get it? Cheesy He actually is popular with the ladies..in a 7th grade sort of way. The other entries are amazing!!!
